i'm bill o'reilly. spin stops right here because spin stops right here because we're looking out for you. captioned by closed captioning services, inc ♪ ♪ >> sean: all right. think fast. right wing conspiracy is alive and well according to president barack obama. in an interview with brian wilson of nbc news the president was asked to respond to the recent "time" magazine poll that showed one in five americans thinks he's a muslim. president obama says he knows who is to blame for this poll. take a look. >> we went through some of this in the campaign. you know, there is a mechmism, network of misinformation that in a new media era can get turned out there constantly. >> sean: a mechanism of misinformation. my, that sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it? >> the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and
explain it is the vast right wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. >> sean: in the interview the president raised the issue of the birth certificate again. he can't stop talking about it. take a look at this. >> i'm not going to be worrying too much about whatever rumors are floating out there. if i spend all of my time chasing after that, then i wouldn't get must have done. i have would say that i can't spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead. >> sean: guess who is coming to the defense of the aminutes toed one? the old pal, former pastor, jeremiah wright. wright lashed out at voters of those who identify the president as muslim referring to them as "enemy" and "sycophants." joining me, the president of the revival of the right wing conspiracy, return of reverend wright and governor
sarah palin. welcome back. thank you to be here. >> my highest privilege to be with you, sean. thank you. >> sean: i don't know what to make of the president and his answer and the right wing conspiracy and the -- why is he bringing this up? just coming off vacation. he seemed defensive and angry. what was your reaction? >> my first reaction was listening to brian williams and wondering brian, that's stealth reporting. you are not going to follow up and ask in the heck is barack obama talking about? what is he insen waiting? i was appalled at the notion that brian was letting him get away with the false accusation that there is some suggested right wing conspiracy again. knowing that the media still are in his back pocket still. >> sean: you know what was amazing to me? basic questions that went unasked in the interview. for example, why is the state department, why is barack obama sending a controversial
imam that says america is accessory to 9/11, why are we paying for him to go to the middle east? what did he think of the comments when he said barack obama -- when he said that he was made in the usa? what can they not come up with? >> they can't ask the basic questions. nobody is asking the questions unless the president were to i join you on your show, sean. the state of journalism today is sad with the main stream media to allow the president make false accusations. it's a lot like bill clinton made a point in the presidential campaign when barack obama misrepresented hillary clinton record and her intentions and bill clinton said this is the biggest fairy tale i've seen. that remains today. it continues to be a fairytale that barack obama
wants to perpetuate and lay all over the american people. the media is not asking the questions like you are pointing out that have to be asked. >> sean: i have been contending from day one that the president is more radical than he lets on. the president now, look where we are economically and where he has been on international affairs. is anything he's done surprised you at all? or is this what you expect from him when you were running as vice president? >> what surprised me is he would be so bold to appoint his czar so far on the left. i thought he would be more politically astute and bring moderates in. those calling the shot with him and for him are on such a far extreme left they are doing great damage to the country. you are seeing more and more people engaged, motivated because we're concerned and we'll do something about it in the november mid-terms to take the gavel away from
those who are the sheep underneath president obama right now, pelosi and reid. and are conducting some activity in implementing policies. by adopting policies that aren't right for national security. >> sean: you put yourself out there and made it known you are supporting more conservative candidates. many people that you went out on a limb for, people you endorsed shattered the illusions of the establish. ment the candidates are breaking through. as you look at the candidates you supported early on, endorsed, not establishment candidates even this your home state of alaska, how do you interpret that? what do you think is happening in the country? what is the mood and what does it tell us about november 2? >> there is a craving in the electorate to balance out extremism we see on the left that's running the show.
people know to balance it out, we need more not the g.o.p. establishment that has gone along to get along but those who are bolder, more protectionist of our constitution. more conservative. that's who we are seeing through the top on the primary. we have a miracle on ice going on in alaska, the dynasty, the murkowski family, with a sterling resume and understanding the constitution challenged her. he is winning in the vote count. i think you will see the alaska election manifestation of voters' desire to see positive change. >> it's interesting that they are already trying to vilify him in any way they can. paint him as extreme because he says constitutionally maybe privatizing social security is the best thing to do and maybe government is not best to control everies a
peck of our life -- aspect of our life. this is joe miller. i agree with you. if you look at poll, 40% of the people identify conservatives and 20% identify as liberal. we're more conservative. he thinks the republican party, establishment, more toward conservative leaning than republican. >> i do believe that many in the g.o.p. machine, in the top upper echelon of spokes in the machine, their understanding people say enough is enough. of going along to get along. isn't it funny that people think extreme position is one of protecting the constitution and recognizing that the federal government has limited rights and it's only the rights that we as electorate give them to implement and they can cover us with? isn't it funny they consider
it extreme? nothing that founders would have envisioned. >> sean: that was the answer that joe miller gave over the weekend. he said you're out of touch with founders and framers and the constitution. governor, we have more. polls to show you and more on the election coming up. also coming up, we have more with governor palin. dick morris will be here to break down how the tough economic times could hurt the president and members of his party in november. shocking news about the ground zero mosque developer and his

over democrats. 51% of voters say they would side with the republican candidate. only 41% say they would vote for the democratic candidate. to put all of this in perspective, from the g.o.p., ten-point lead, by the way the is largest any party held since gallop began tracking the ballot in 1942. we continue now with former alaska governor, fox news contributor, governor palin. 1942. this is the largest lead a party has ever had. could this be bigger -- >> amazing. >> sean: -- than '94? >> this is huge. huge. it's encouraging, but it's also, wake-up call, that has to be heard by the constitutional conservatives to get out and vote for those running for office who get it. when we get to poll, pull the lever for the right person.
the white house is under estimate the wisdom of the people. the government is not the answer. those who govern the least are the best. >> sean: that's resonating the most. that's from ronald reagan's speech. i read reagan's writing. "reagan in his own hands" is one of the best books to read. the republican party gets this is a conservative movement or ascendancies. what do yousy the five items to run on now? >> we need growth incentive to allow economy to be on the right track. we need the promise made and kept by the candidates they will do all they can to not let barack obama increase the taxes. 18 weeks from now, we'll be slapped with the largest increase in taxes in u.s. history. if the bush cuts are allowed
to expire. that's nonsensical in the state of economy. we need to run on energy independence to make sure the land set aside for energy to be explored. we do to that be secure. we are in a hole. we need to quit digging. the common sense things, we need to make sure they're taken care of. >> sean: taxes. cutting spending. energy independence. controlling the bill before voting on them. not apologize for america. that would round out the top five or six items. >> let me add, too, we need to quit coddling our enemies and poking our allies in the eye. i don't know what the heck the foreign policy is coming
from the white house. we know there is great uncertainty in the economy. we don't know if the allies can count on us. that's antithesis of ronald reagan. we need the enemies with a healthy fear of america. the friends knew they could count on us. >> i know you were out in washington and you've been with candidates on the stump. whenever you go, you seem to draw the most attention of any political figure out there today. what do you think the difference is? i know candidates would like to have your popularity, but they don't.
>> i am blessed that the platform i've been given can be used for good to get the country on the right track. there are so many people out there, you being one of them. what people want to hear are time-tested truths and how they can be applied to challenges facing america today. the acknowledgment that there is nothing wrong with america today that americans can't fix. you have the same platform. a lot of candidates are out there with the same. let's be thankful for that. >> sean: the message is simpler than some make it out to be. i wish some republicans and i know they talk about putting ideas on paper. i would like to see promises on paper. good or bad idea? >> great idea.
that is nothing that you can lay your hands on. we need to hold them accountable. you signed a contract. stick with it or you're fired. >> so for the next 60 days you are going to be doing what? are you thinking about your political future? >> not about my own political future. my concern is the mid-term and turning it around. this is a desperate time in america. unfortunately, we you look at the characters in the white house, we have to realize that they are getting desperate. we need to be careful and astute in the next two years when it comes to hearing what it is that they're going to do to america. we need to make sure that we have congress elected to stop

constituency here. half of americans don't pay taxes and the other half are the beneficiary of the taxes the other half pay. you have a full voting bloc. it seems like the democratic party, bob's party caters to that. >> an entire generation built on the safety net. no doubt about that. it's spending on auto pilot. programs that you need in recession, yes, in the hard times. the problem is nobody wants to look to be fiscally responsible in good times. republicans have been talking about, this looking at the controls. medicare, medicaid -- >> sean: but the american people are demanding it. we got off an eight-city concert and i never felt intensity and energy and you read the polls. you are now more worried about polls on your side than you have ever been. >> first, let me say i want to give -- [ inaudible ] to lou holtz and the terrible situation. he is worth more than all of us combined. but he worked for it. he worked for it. >> sean: look at the story about his father. i read his book.
>> i read all of his books. >> as he pointed out times -- >> you could read it. >> let me say one thing about this, if i could. when we started the programs, those of us who are liberals believed we were doing the right thing. we ended up with two generations of people and we made a mistake. we have to correct that. it doesn't mean that there are not room for programs. we need them. but a lot of us on my side own up here -- >> sean: that is an honest answer. >> it's a true answer. it is difficult if you depend how to understand how to go get it done for yourself. >> first, there is nothing more miserable than to get whatever crumbs the government -- or cake they'll feed you at the end of the day. i'll move on. we have our own state department. they are sending a controversial imam and his wife to the middle east. we're paying the bill for that. which is numbing. i can't even answer that. our own state department now is reporting arizona to the
u.n. human rights commission in a violations report. in other words, jan brewer, the law they passed that reinforces the federal law, we're not reporting to the u.n. human rights commission. >> first, there is always going to be an enemy. everything that happens, there is always an enemy and a bad person, fat cat, et cetera. as i understand it, the laws are similar. but here is the difference. the government said my goodness, arizona is going to enforce the law. we can't let that happen. that is the only difference. what i don't understand you talk about family. why take it to the united nations? if you have a problem, work it out within the family. why take it to the united nations and say investigate it? >> sean: interesting, jan brewer wrote a letter, great letter to clinton and said the idea of our government submitting dually enacted laws of a state, to the united states to review by the u.n.saz internationalism run amok and unconstitutional.
she's right. >> i agree with the governor. hypocritical and not what the arizona, you know, disagreement is about, with the justice department. this isn't sex trafficking or human trafficking. this is an issue -- >> sean: the law, it cites federal law. as the foundation. we'll take it -- the human rights commission had great countries. gaddafi's libya. saddam hussein's iraq. iran. >> are you finished? >> sean: no. now i am. >> add a few more countries. >> arizona law is not like the united states government law in this respect. if we went down driving in arizona, lou holtz wouldn't be pulled over and asked for identification. you wouldn't. i wouldn't. you might, my friend. >> sean: the law specifically prohibits it. >> that is the problem. >> sean: the obama administration didn't argue that point. >> i know and they should have. >> i better go to arizona, i
was stopped bay policeman and he asked for my driver's license and i.d. >> coach, there was probably a good reason to pull you over. but i'm telling you that -- >> but -- >> if i get pulled over and run a search for outstanding warrant, is that unconstitutional or unfair? >> what is unconstitutional is pulling somebody over because they have a different skin. >> sean: the law says you can't do that. >> or they don't speak english. >> the law specifically prohibits it. >> it's a false argument. yes, there are, in most cases the law enforcement does the right thing. few bad apples. >> coach, i let you -- i have a cracked rib. my whole side is black and blue. >> i have news for you. we run the football. don't throw it. >> more on the great american >> more on the great american bboss: our breakout session is gonna be great. got the gecko t-shirt...
